Meet Aaron Stern, Senior Director of Marketing
What was the first record you fell in love with?
The first record I fell in absolute love with was Nirvana ‘Nevermind’. I think I mostly connected with the energy and angst — I guess I was an angsty 8 year old, but it resonated for a good reason and it’s still one of my favorites to this day.
What is the most important thing about your work at RCA?
The most important thing about our work at RCA is how we’re able to help contribute to projects that shape our culture. We’re a part of something that has global reach and affects people’s lives on a deep level. Not every profession can boast that.
What was a critical moment in music history for you?
The first time I ever attended a rock concert. it was No Doubt at Nassau Coliseum and seeing a band in full production on stage blew my mind.
Name a record that has had a significant impact on you.
Radiohead – OK Computer. It’s the record I put on when I want to feel calm. It’s my go to on airplane rides, it makes looking out the window more interesting.
What live performance will you never forget?
My final Foo Fighters concert with Taylor Hawkins behind the drums before he passed. He’s an icon and a huge hero of mine. That was tough, but I am so glad I made it out to that show. I will never forget it.
